    Property of James and Kathryn Abbe

    1Black Painted Queen Anne Heart and Crown Arm Chair

    Stratford area, Connecticut, 1765-1775

    H. 47 in.

    Literature: A nearly identical example is in the Silas

    Deane House, Wethersfi eld, Connecticut. Please see

    Robert F. Trent, Heart and Crown Chairs, New Haven:

    New Haven Historical Society, 1977, pl. 17, p. 48.

    $1,500-2,500

    James (1912-1999) and Kathryn Abbe shared a love for art, antiques and photography. Each had well-established careers, James, as a pho-tographer and later as a well known dealer in Folk Art and Americana. He was known for his excellent taste and was a pioneering advocate for Folk Art, The emphasis should be on the Art and not the Folk he would say. Kathryn, a photographer and an identical twin, is the author of several books; her work has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries. Each had a great eye, and when they worked together, the result was often splendid. They liked the juxtaposition of one object with another and the effects of light and shadow. Our January 22 sale features some of the best works from the folk art collection that they built together. Starting the sale off will be a Black Painted Queen Anne Heart and Crown Arm Chair with a classic shaped and pierced crest-rail and graceful arms that shows more than 250 years of usage; it was made in Connecticut in the fi rst-half of the 18th century (lot 1).

    Prominent among the pieces is a rare 18th century Polychrome Painted White Pine Countertop Figure of a standing gentleman (lot 18). A pair of early folk art paintings of twins, circa 1815, is powerful for the sitters stern expressions and edginess (lot 3) that brings to mind

    photographer Diane Arbuss haunting work Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey, 1967.

    The Abbes loved carved and painted wooden and metal fi gures. A painted wood, tin and iron fi gure of a rooster (lot 4), probably used

    as a roof ornament, is a whimsical accessory to any home. A portrait of a Girl in a Rocking Chair by Asahel Powers (lot 15) is an excellent example of Powers work. As an untrained artist Powers had a diffi cult time making items appear to be anchored to the fl oor; the young girl appears to be fl oating.

    The rococo-carved walnut dressing table (lot 48) has acanthus leafcarved front legs and central drawer with naturalistic shell and fl anking leafage attributed to the well-known carver Martin Jugiez (d. 1819). A pie-crust tea table (lot 61) is another wonderful example of Philadelphia rococo furniture. The table displays a crisply cut scalloped top and well-shaped acanthus leafcarved cabriole legs.

    The winsome Portrait of a Young Child in a White Dress and Red Shoes with Peach and

    Dog by Deacon Robert Peckham (American, 1785-1877) (lot 39) is a colorful pastel portrait probably executed in Massachusetts circa 1830. It survives with its original glass and frame intact.

    We also have a family reunion of sorts with a double portrait (c. 1828) by the

    renowned deaf-mute artist John Brewster Jr. Portrait of Marcia Bowman Winter (b.

    1824) and William Drew Winter (b. 1820) of Bath, Maine (lot 52). It is serendipitous that two of their siblings, Sarah and Wealthy Winter, also painted by Brewster at about the same time, were recently discovered at the family homestead in Maine. They are depicted in another double portrait in this sale consigned by direct descendants of the sitters (lot 49, front cover).

    It is an honor and pleasure for Keno Auctions to offer for sale the Collection of Dr. and Mrs. Robert Isbell. People collect for a variety of reasons; the Isbells assem-bled a fabulous Americana collection because of their passion for each piece. Over three decades they sought out the best examples of high quality Colonial American furniture and folk art using the criteria of quality, rarity, condition and provenance as their guide. Two examples of Queen Anne furniture, each from mid-18th century Massachusetts, rank high on the scale in terms of the Isbells standards. The Queen Anne diminutive mahogany table with rectangular drop leaves (lot 53), is constructed of the very best quality highly fi gured mahogany, with powerful, yet graceful cabriole legs. One of just a few Queen Anne tables in the world of this small size, it also retains much of its original fi nish. The Cox-Pickering Bonnet-Top mahogany high chest (lot 40) displays vertical proportions, a crisply scalloped skirt and shell-carved drawers and an impeccable pedigree; the piece descended directly from Timothy Pickering (1702-1778) the prominent merchant of Salem, Massachusetts.

    Philadelphia Chippendale furniture from the 1760s is well represented in the collection by two pieces, each purchased by the Isbells more than 20 years ago.

    Property of Direct Descendants of the Sitters

    49Attributed to John Brewster, Jr. (American, 1766-1854)

    Double Portrait of Wealthy Jones Winter (b. 1819) and Sarah Marie Winter

    (b. 1817)

    Bath, Maine, circa 1827

    Oil on canvas

    22 x 17 inches

    The Winter family traces its roots in Bath, Maine to the mid-eighteenth century, when

    the grandfather of the sitters, Francis Winter, a Boston native and Harvard graduate

    settled in Bath, Maine. At that time, Maine was still a part of Massachusetts and he

    served as a representative to the Massachusetts legislature the First Congregational

    Pastor in Bath. He married Abigal Alden (1750-1826) in 1768. Francis and Abigal

    The following lot comprises a portrait of Wealthy and Sarah Winter, sisters of Marcia and William Winter (whose portrait will be offered as lot 52). The present owners of lot 49 are direct descendants of the Winter family. Keno auctions is honored to offer these sibling portraits in the same auction.

    49

    Winter had four children, including Samuel (1789-1835). He married Sarah Bowman

    (1793-1828) in 1814. They had seven children, including the four depicted here in lots

    49 and 52. Thier mother, Sarah Bowman (whose portrait, also by john Brewster, Jr., is

    still in the family collection) died just six days after giving birth to her seventh child.

    Thier father, Samuel Winter, a seaman, distiller and leader of the local Whig Party, was

    regarded as a notable citizen. He died in 1835; his orphaned children were adopted

    by family members.

    The Winter Family homestead remains with the direct descendants to this day. Until

    now, this portrait hung on the wall across from a portrait of their mother, Sarah

    Bowman, since it was painted circa 1827. The portrait of William Drew and Marcia

    Bowman Winter (offered as lot 52) was sold by the family some years ago and thus

    the portraits were separated. It is serendipitous that these two portraits are reunited

    for the fi rst time in more than thirty-fi ve years.

    Provenance: Descended directly in the family of the sitters to the present owner.

    The box bears a partial label of the Connecticut

    Recent wood analysis by Harry Alden Identifi cation

    indicates the bottom board is white pine native to

    northeastern U.S. and Canada and the backboard is

    white oak. The backboard sample is white oak with

    narrow rings indicating extremely slow growth which

    would not be expected in English furniture of 1600-

    1750. Harry Alden, September 2012

    Provenance: Descended in the Brown Family of Providence to present owner

    shaped brackets, above cabriole legs, with peaked knees and terminating in pointed

    slipper feet. A heavy convex molding is applied to the perimeter. With a broad convex

    inner edge and beaded top edge with a rounded exterior. The skirts on most known

    examples have a convex applied skirt molding. On most tables, including this example,

    the knee brackets are separate pieces of wood affi xed to the bottom of the molding

    and the adjoining leg. Six of the eight returns on this table are original. This tea table is

    notable for its exemplary proportions, condition and provenance. These proportions

    are accentuated by the bold convex moldings that encircle the top. Also contribut-

    ing to the successful proportions are sinuous cabriole legs with their notable peaked

    knees, graceful ankles, and elongated slipper feet. A Chippendale drop-leaf table,

    attributed to John Goddard (1723/4-1785), also descended in the same family as the

    Edward A. Chandlee Six Quaker Clockmakers, Stratford,

    Connecticut: The New England Publishing Company,

    1973 (originally published 1943), pp. 181-206.

    Provenance: Descended directly in the Breckinridge

    family to Mrs. Elizabeth (Breckinridge) Field and her

    husband, Eben J.D. Cross II (classmate and lawyer of F.

    Scott Fitzgerald);

    To the present owner, her son in law

    The founder of the Chandlee dynasty of clock and

    scientifi c instrument makers was Benjamin Chandlee,

    Sr., who migrated in 1702 from Ireland to Philadel-

    phia, where he was apprenticed to Abel Cottey,

    clockmaker, and eventually married Cotteys daughter.

    His son Benjamin Chandlee, Jr. (1723-1791), worked

    as a clockmaker in Nottingham, Chester County

    Pennsylvania, where he produced instruments as well

    as clocks. He had four sons, Goldsmith, Ellis, John and

    Isaac. Ellis Chandlee (1755-1816) was apprenticed to

    his father, and he worked with his brothers in the shop.

    He established the fi rm of Ellis Chandlee & Brothers

    in 1790, shortly before his fathers death. The fi rm was

    dissolved in 1797 when the youngest brother, John

    Chandlee, left the fi rm. Ellis continued in partnership

    with his other brother, Isaac Chandlee (1760-1813),

    until about 1804, producing clocks, surveying instru-

    ments, and other metal articles. Their products were

    signed Ellis and Isaac Chandlee, Nottingham, or, in the

    case of a surveying compass in the collection of the

    Chester County Historical Society, E. & I. Chandlee,

    Nottingham. Isaac Chandlee also produced clocks

    and instruments on his own, for there are a number

    of surviving clocks and surveying compasses signed in

    such manner

    Furniture (N.Y., 1950), p. 100; and as Masterpiece in Albert Sack, The New Fine Points

    of Furniture (N.Y., 1993), p. 103

    The chest with a richly fi gured crotch mahogany overhanging rectangular molded-

    front serpentine top above a conforming cock-beaded case fi tted with four graduated

    long drawers over a molded base with boldly carved claw-and-ball feet and spur

    returns.

    Chests with serpentine blocked-end facades were among the most expensive forms

    of case furniture produced in eighteenth century New England.

    This chest is an extremely successful example of the form in the beauty and execution

    of its design, and the selection of richly swirled dense mahogany. The proportions are

    superb; the narrow case is balanced by the generous overhanging top. In addition, the

    carved claw-and-ball feet are boldly carved expression of the design element, with

    well-articulated talons gripping the carved ball.

    Please note: Typical of Boston practice, the top is attached to the case sides with a slid-

    ing dovetail, the drawers have fi ne dovetails and the drawer bottoms are chamfered

    and received into the drawer front and sides. The claw-and-ball feet are tenoned up

    through the case (rather than just being glued on the underside and secured with

    additional glue blocks in the standard manner. This through-tenon method was a more

    laborious means of construction, yet yielded a stronger bond with the case.).

    109A Pair of Polychrome Painted Bass-Wood Blackamoors

    Probably English, 18th century

    Early Blackamours are very rare. The design of this pair,

    with tubaned fi gures on tripod bases comprised of

    acanthus leaf carved cabriole legs ending in bold claw

    and ball feet, is very dramatic and appropriate for what

    one would expect to be produced for a home in 18th

    century England, or its American colonies.

    Wood analysis by Henry Alden confi rms that the

    wood of the tables is bass-wood, also known in Eng-

    land as lime-wood. This hardwood was popular with

    carvers in England because of its close grain. Grinling

    Gibbons (1648-1721) did most of his fl ower and fi gure

    carvings for St. Pauls Cathedral and Windsor Castle

    in lime-wood. Bass-wood was also often used as a

    secondary wood for craftsmen such as Japanners.

    An additional report by Jennifer Mass, Senior Scientist

    at Winterthur, confi rms the presence of seven paint

    layers executed in period techniques including smalt,

    verdigris and bronze powder paint.

    The Course of Empire is a fi ve-part series of paintings

    created by Thomas Cole in the years 1833-36. The

    series refl ected popular American sentiments of the

    times, when many saw pastoralism as the ideal phase of

    human civilization, fearing that imperialism would lead to

    decadence and inevitable decay.

    The series was acquired by The New-York Historical

    Society in 1858 as a gift of the New-York Gallery of

    Fine Arts, and comprises the following works: The Course

    of Empire - The Savage State; The Course of Empire - The

    Arcadian or Pastoral State; The Course of Empire - The

    Consummation of Empire; The Course of Empire - Destruc-

    tion; and The Course of Empire - Desolation.

    The series of paintings depicts the growth and fall of

    an imaginary city, situated on the lower end of a river

    valley, near its meeting with a bay of the sea. The valley is

    distinctly identifi able in each of the paintings, in part be-

    cause of an unusual landmark: a large boulder is precari-

    ously situated atop a crag overlooking the valley. Some

    critics believe this is meant to contrast the immutability

    of the earth with the transience of man.

    THE COLLECTION OF JOANNE AND JEFFREY KLEIN

    Collectors Joanne and Jeffrey Klein enjoy the eclectic mix of American folk art, painted furniture and modern sculpture and paintings. They love the juxtaposition of modern with traditional ranging from symbolism to widely varying textured painted and weathered surfaces. Their appreciation of form, color and texture is exhibited in their collection of exceptional painted furniture, weathervanes, redware pottery, hooked rugs and wood carvings. Over a period of about 30 years, dealer and consultant Mary Beth Keene, then working at Wayne Pratt Inc., expertly guided and advised them on the very best of their acquisitions. Typical of the quality of several weathervanes in the collection is the wonderful gilt cop-per peacock, circa 1865, (lot 121) and the leaping stag, attributed to Harris & co. Boston (lot 123).

    The Queen Anne Salmon-Painted Chest of Five Drawers, made circa 1795, (lot 122) and attributed to Samuel Dunlap of New Hampshire, is the collections mas-

    terpiece. This bold form, a case of drawers raised on graceful cabriole legs, most remarkably retains its original salmon red paint, and the oval pressed brasses are also original. Not only is it a sublimely beautiful object in remarkable condition; it is a rare Rosetta stone for Samuel Dunlap furniture. The equivalent in vintage car world would be a beautiful 1959 Ferrari Testarossa racing car which has survived with its original paint.

    The Kleins assembled a spectacular group of Windsor armchairs with an emphasis on great form and excellent surface. It is rare to see such a fi ne group of exam-ples in one collection (lot 50).

    Joanne and Jeffrey Klein are the perfect example of a couple who simply bought what pleased them and as a result formed a truly wonderful collection. It is an honor and a pleasure to offer these pieces at Keno Auctions.

    138Red Painted Comb-Back Windsor Arm Chair with Knuckle Arms

    Isaac Kitchell (working 1789-1812)

    Chairs, New York: Hudson Hills Press, 1996, p. 199, fi g.

    Continuing the Philadelphia fashion, Kitchell uses a

    similar crest rail with scroll motif and knuckle arms

    as illustrated on p. 91 of American Windsor Chairs. A

    trend for high-back Windsor chairs was established in

    Connecticut in the 1780s, and Kitchell continued the

    style in New York soon after. This example, however,

    more closely relates to the fi ner details of Philadelphia

    models. A simpler example (with a replaced medial

    stretcher) is illustrated in American Windsor Chairs, fi g.

    5-10. Both models feature the Ic. KITCHEL brand

    mark and an owners brand, G.M. TIBBITS.

    Dr. Auzouxs realized in 1822 during his medical training, that cadavers rapidly deterio-

    rated and wax models were not readily available, hence there was a need in the fi eld

    for anatomically correct models. The workshop of Louis Auzoux used an innovative

    papier-mch method to cast anatomical fi gures for teaching purposes. (reference:

    Maine Antiques Digest, June, 2012). The internal body cavity and head open and, like

    the exterior they are meticulously labeled with Latin inscriptions on small strips of

    New Mexico, circa 1925

    Death carts, with their terrifying fi gures of La Muerte, are a peculiarly New Mexican art

    form, appearing in the Holy Week processions of the Brotherhood. In their secret rites,

    Penitentes dragged the heavy, cumbersome death carts to calvarios, where they com-

    memorated the Crucifi xion. The fi gure and cart represents the power of death during the

    period between the crucifi xion and the resurrection, and the ritual foretells the miracle of

    Christs ultimate triumph over death.

    248Rembrandt Peale (American, 1778-1860)

    Portrait of Margaret Irvine (Mrs. John) Miller

    (1756-1847)

    Circa 1805-1807

    Oil on canvas

    27 x 22 inches

    This portrait exemplifi es Peales tendency to take

    liberty with the way in which he portrayed his sitters.

    Mr. and Mrs. Miller begin as a working class family

    who later raised their position in Philadelphia society.

    Though her clothing is aristocratic, Mrs. Millers pose

    and gaze are those of a straightforward, working class

    woman. Likewise, Peale depicts her husband in a fi ne

    suit, resting on a stone, with detailed work affected.

    Mr. John Miller (1754-1814), a stonecutter, and his fam-

    ily were painted in exchange for steps and chimney

    pieces for Peales house. The fi ve other family por-

    traits are also illustrated in the exhibition catalog.

    John Breckinridge (1760-1806)

    Oil on canvas

    $4,000-8,000

    John Breckinridge (December 2, 1760-December

    14, 1806) served as a lawyer and politician from

    Virginia and later Kentucky. He was elected to the

    United States Senate and appointed the fi fth United

    States Attorney General during President Thomas

    Jeffersons second presidential term. He is the origi-

    nator of Kentuckys Breckinridge political family and

    represents the namesake of Breckinridge County in

    Kentucky. Despite his prominence, period images of

    Mr. Breckinridge are quite rare.

    An often reproduced painting by Alban Jasper Conaut

    (1821-1915) was painted in 1863, more than 55 years

    after Breckinridges death.

    House in 1856 with President James Buchanan. He

    was active in the Army, Kentucky State Legislature and

    United States House of Representatives. During his

    Vice Presidency, he was well respected for his unfailing

    fairness in the Senate during an unprecedented com-

    bative era in United States history.

    Bidding Increments The auctioneer will commence the bidding at any level and in increments con-sidered appropriate. Bids will be sought in increments selected by the auction-eer who will have the absolute discretion to select any increments for any lot (and the discretion to vary the increments in the course of the bidding for any lot). However, generally speaking, the increments will depend upon the low estimate for the lot. Thus for example, for lots having a low estimate below $1,000, bids will be sought at increments of $50. The normal pattern for bid-ding increments will be as follows:

    Low Estimate Increments< 999 $50s$1,000 1,999 $100s$2,000 4,999 $250s$5,000 9,999 $500s$10,000 29,999 $1,000s$30,000 49,999 $2,500s$50,000 99,999 $5,000s> $100,000 at auctioneers discretion

    These increments may vary during the course of the auction at the discretion of the auctioneer.

    Estimates Pre-sale estimates are provided to encourage competitive bidding. These esti-mates may not be relied upon as any predictions of the selling price and may not be considered to be any opinion or representation regarding the value of the property. Keno Auctions shall not be responsible or liable for any differ-ence between a pre-sale estimate and the actual selling price for any lot.

    Reserves Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to a reserve, which is a confi dential minimum price set by the seller below which the lot will be not be sold. The reserve will not exceed a given low pre-sale estimate at the time of the auction. Regardless of whether there is a reserve, the auctioneer may reject any bid and withdraw any lot for any reason. In order to comply with the sellers reserve on any lot, the auctioneer may open bidding by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may bid further on behalf of the seller (i.e. a bid from the book held by the auctioneer) up to the amount of the reserve by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. If a lot is not sold, the auctioneer will announce that fact (normally by stating that the lot has been unsold or passed).

Such property will be identifi ed in the catalogue with the symbol * next to the lot number.
